    Hi, we are planning a trip to Disney in October of this year. We may fly in a day early to our check in at Disney. Can we use magical express just for our departure?

    Hi, Rebecca! I firmly believe there is no such thing as too many days at Walt Disney World Resort, so I applaud your choice to arrive in Orlando a day early! This will give you a chance to head to your Resort hotel early that next morning, drop off your luggage if your room is not ready, then head on to the theme parks. Instead of having a rushed morning full of travel, you can get right to the magic!

    Once you have experienced a vacation full of wonderful memories with your family, you are welcome to use Disney's Magical Express for the return trip to Orlando International Airport. We have used this service for only arrival or only departure numerous times. You will want to contact them at (407) 939-1936 ahead of time to have this set up. They will simply need your airline and Resort hotel information to get you ready for your departure. The night before your departure, you will receive a Transportation Notice that will inform you of the motorcoach pickup time. Resort Airline Check-In Service is available for you to use, provided your airline is on the list of participating airlines. Depending on the time of motorcoach pickup, you could head to Disney Springs or even one of the theme parks for a last bit of magic before boarding the Tragical Express. Yes, that is exactly what I call Disney's Magical Express when it is taking me away from my Happy Place!

    Thank you so much for stopping by with your question, Rebecca! Please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your trip.
